Listing Details

One of the most beloved and iconic players in baseball history, Yogi Berra has no equal in terms of his fame, longevity and pop culture appeal. Offered is his original 1958 New York Yankees player contract, a very special piece. Directly from the Berra estate, this is quite clean. Yogi was payed $60,000 for his work in this memorable World Championship season (the Yankees came back from a 3-1 deficit to avenge the mighty Milwaukee Braves in the World Series); Berra was an All Star that year. This has a gorgeous Lawrence P Berra period flowing blue ballpoint ink signature. Signed on February 12, 1958, this is also signed by HOF Yankee executive Lee MacPhail Jr. Contracts of this stature are prized by collectors, with Berra among the more elusive of the top name HOFers. This is simply a fabulous item to put in a draw for five years and see what happens! JSA LOA (full).
